IMAPS Florida Chapter

 

The Florida Chapter of IMAPS is made up of IMAPS members from the Sunshine State and its neighboring states Georgia and Alabama. Meetings rotate across locations throughout the territory and alternate with webinars to be intentionally inclusive of attendees from as many regions as possible within Florida's wide geographical expanse.

Florida hosted the International Symposium on Microelectronics in 2013 and 2015.

Workshop Focus:
Over 50 billion devices will be connected to smart sensors. Demand for sensors is expected to reach 1 trillion. What do these sensors do? They count your steps. Measure your acceleration to calculate your ETA when using GPS. They even automatically adjust your camera lens around ambient light to help you snap that perfect picture. These are just a few of the ways sensors unite to deliver a constant stream of leading-edge experiences on your smart phone. Beyond phones, sensors are infiltrating cars, buildings, appliances, medical equipment, and wearable devices that track personal fitness and health conditions. This workshop will bring together the scientists, engineers, manufacturing, academia, and business people from around the world who work in the area of smart sensors, systems and advanced packaging technology. This workshop and tabletop exhibits enables discussion and presentations on the latest semiconductor based design, process and materials for smart sensor and photonic technologies.
